Alex Kennedy: I don’t mean to be a downer regarding the Brandon Ingram DVT news. Like I said, this only becomes serious if Ingram has a clotting issue and needs blood-thinning meds long-term. Plenty of athletes have had one clot and were fine after that. Anderson Varejao, Serena Williams, etc.
Golden State Warriors superstar point guard Curry is firmly in the former camp, but has urged people to recognise the achievements of Osaka. “I would say a championship match in terms of high-level talent on the court between those two ladies… obviously Naomi deserved to win and she played amazing,” Curry told Omnisport. “The way Serena handled the situation, I think she handled it with such grace and class. “At the end of the day, I hope everybody understands and celebrates Naomi because she’s the US Open champion and that’s pretty dope.”
